BARREN LAND

Why art thou barren oh land?
Why art thou desolate dry and weary land?

When will your fruitfulness be accomplished?
Arise and lift off the curse bestowed on thee and thy inhabitants

Loose thyself from everything that holds the captive
Let thy land be cultivated and let thy tree grow on thy lands

Let green leaves flourish all over thy lands

And let every part of you be fruitful
